Video: Janelle Monáe – ‘Electric Lady’

Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe celebrates the “Electric Ladies” in her life in the video for the title track off her latest album.

The leader of the Androids heads back to college as a member of a sorority called the Electro Phi Betas. The ladies throw a party at their sorority house, doing the electric slide with some co-eds and even bringing out a marching band. Look for cameos from T.I., T-Boz, Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, Monica, Kimbra, and even Janelle’s mother.

Janelle recently honored First Lady Michelle Obama as the “First Electric Lady.” “First of all, I am honored to be the First Electric Lady. I got my letter in the mail—I framed it; it’s up,” said Obama. “I love that she is one of the young artists here who is making music that means something. She has a message. She has a voice. She has a power in her.”

Watch Janelle and her Electric Ladies get down.
